Weight Loss Support: One-to-One Sessions
Have you tried all the traditional slimming clubs or latest fad diets, do you have a history of repetitive dieting, weight loss and weight regain (‘yo-yo’ dieting), and now feel you’re in need of more personalised, tailored support to help you improve your eating long-term, lose weight and keep off the weight for good?
My one-to-one weight loss support service, based around the Camberley, Surrey area (or available via Skype) is for people who would like personalised, one-to-one sessions in preference to attending my small group sessions, and go at their own pace. This weight loss support service involves one-to-one sessions of dietary coaching in the comfort of your own home, or at my home.
The sessions focus very much on individual client needs. They can focus on the psychological factors associated with your eating patterns (such as emotional eating), enabling us to create strategies to help you adopt a healthier relationship with food, or they could focus more on your actual diet, where we might discuss nutritional aspects and work together on creating personalised meal plans with specific meal and snack ideas. Therefore, the weight loss support sessions might focus more on psychological aspects or more on the nutritional aspects, or they might address a mixture of the two.
We can look at various behavioural aspects such as current barriers to weight loss where we can identify any unhelpful habits you might have, and work together on building new, more helpful ones. It’s through exploration within the actual sessions that issues can be identified and targeted.
Flexibility of Sessions
To receive the full benefit, it is recommended (but not compulsory) that clients attending one-to-one sessions complete a minimum of four sessions (taken weekly, fortnightly or monthly)- this is because implementing new eating / lifestyle habits can take time, and clients benefit from ongoing support and regular reviews of their progress. The number of sessions required will also depend very much on individual needs and preferences.
If clients choose to see me ongoing for multiple sessions, they have the option of reducing session frequency. For example, they might start off with weekly or fortnightly sessions, but further down the line they might choose to see me for reviews or ‘check-ins’ once a month or once every 6-8 weeks.
From my experience of working with clients, several sessions over time is much more effective than just one or two sessions over a short period, as building new and sustainable habits can take time. Regular sessions over a few months offer the client a great opportunity to receive ongoing support, develop and consolidate skills and knowledge, maintain motivation and re-visit or ‘tweak’ strategies for any particular challenges they might be facing.
I offer text/Whatsapp/email support as part of the service to help keep clients motivated, supported and focused between sessions. Many clients find this beneficial.
Initial session (90 minutes): £60 (if I come to your home), £55 (if you come to mine); Skype £55 (for clients living less locally and in other parts of the UK and elsewhere).
Subsequent Sessions (60 minutes): £45 (if I come to your home), £40 (if you come to mine); Skype £40.
Location: Consultations usually take place at the client’s home in and around the Camberley Surrey area or at my own home (Lightwater, Surrey). Depending on distance, I can also travel to clients living further afield.

I also run one-to-one dietary coaching sessions for individuals who have lost weight and who are seeking support to help them maintain their new weight long-term. Please see ‘Weight Maintenance Support‘.
